I can not compile onboard module needed python-distutils-extra. I use syntax:
python setup.py install --prefix=/usr in python-distutils-extra-2.30 subdir. The error warning is
File "setup.py", line 3 in <module>
from setuptools import setup
ImportError: No module named setuptools

But I have setuptools installed ie python 2.4-setuptools is present in my system

What the problem is? Any help. I am new in portebling debian apps to Mandriva :-(
